I'm thinking of the classic Dunninger line "For those who believe, no explanation is necessary. To those who do not, no explanation in possible"... that sort of thing, any others that people like?

This is on the front of my Complete Set List file.

I don't know where I saw it, but I firmly believe it is the reason why many individuals simply CANNOT cut it as mentalists. They are too honest with themselves while I am a very, very naughty boy...

Sven,

"no explanation suffice" is simply not an English language phrase. I think you mean "no explanation will suffice."
